Philly becomes non-prophet city

For the last 30 years, it has been illegal to make money from telling fortunes in Philidelphia. However, it was only just last month that the city’s Department of Licenses and Inspectors became aware of the law, and subsequently shut down a number of the city’s woo emporiums. If only the rest of the world would follow suit.

No prizes for guessing that none of the psychics saw it coming.

  1. No such luck. Most of them do it for free anyway (at least, according to Simon & Garfunkel: …the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls…).

    That’s strange. I live right near Philadelphia and see signs around for fortune telling, especially off of South Street. I didn’t realize it was illegal…

  5. Apparently neither did the department of licenses and inspectors! but now that they have, expect bureaucracy to take its usual slow pace at getting rid of them all
